Publisher's Summary

What if Stalin had signed with the West in 1939? What if the Allies had been defeated on D-Day? And what if Hitler had won the war?

From the Munich crisis to the dropping of the first atom bomb, and from Hitler's declaration of war on the United States to the D-Day landings - historians suggest "what would have been" if key events in the war had gone differently. Written by an exceptional team of historians as if these world-changing events had really happened, realistic scenarios based on the true capabilities and circumstances of the opposing forces are projected with chilling implications. What if the Nazis had taken London? The alternate outcomes are fascinating and fully realized. If the Allies Had Fallen is a spirited and terrifying alternate history, and a telling insight into the dramatic possibilities of World War II.

Contributors include Thomas M. Barker, Harold C. Deutsch, Walter S. Dunn, Robert M. Love, D. Clayton James, Bernard C. Nalty, Richard J. Overy, Paul Schratz, Dennis E. Showalter, Gerhard L. Weinberg, Anne Wells, and Herman S. Wolk.

not quite as i expected.

this book had great views and scholarly information but seemed to not follow the title of the book. If the allies had fallen. well what would happen? how would it have come about? the last scenario actually took a look at this. the other 59 scenarios looked at the history and small minor changes. even tho the allies probably would have won no matter what... there is still the possibility that german commanders could have maneuvered and out planned the allies. granted hitler was too demanding and a micro manager to actually achieve victory. i liked what i heard and learned a good deal just didnt think the title was most fitting. if you want this book just dont expect the title and you will be fine.

This is NOT Man in the HIgh Castle

What made the experience of listening to If the Allies Had Fallen the most enjoyable?

It presents some alternative points of view to things provided other events did or did not occur. It is written by a historian but he allows himself to speculate on alternative events.

This books focus is on specific military campaigns

The listener needs a strong knowledge of WWII history. Very well written but very focused on not commonly recognized information unless you have a Master's degree in history.

Decent Listen

I enjoyed it but there were some drawn out chapters predictated on a lot of big what ifs. In the end many scenarios or alternatives are just written off as implausible or not significantly affecting the wars outcome. Still it was pretty interesting.

The title is completely misleading

This book gives 60 alternatives to what actually happened in WW2. 59 of them are extremely minor details which would have changed nothing. One deals with truces between the axis and allies. There is not one scenario in which the axis powers actually gain surrender from the allies. The narrator is horrible. He pronounces names differently every time he says them, and attempts to use the umlaut and miserably fails every time. This is just a plain out badly written book.
